[Samba] samba_dlz shutting down on named reload

To a user, samba_dlz just doesn't work correctly with bind.  There are two
obvious options
a) bind is broken somehow and unloads all modules when reloading
b) samba_dlz is somehow broken in the way that it interfaces with bind,
perhaps it misinterprets the signal to 'reload' when it receives it from

As a user, i have no way of knowing which is it is, all that I know is that
sabma_dlz does not work correctly in a specific setting.  Hence, the samba
bug tracker is the right place to report that.
I would expect the samba developers, who know how to build a bind plugin,
to be able to verify if they are implementing the bind API protocol
correctly, and if so, take it upon themselves, having intimate knowledge of
its implementation, get in touch with the authors of bind, to see why their
software doesn't work as advertised.
At any rate, I would expect a comment on the defect to happen during defect
triage.  There is a triage process, right?
